We waited almost 20 mins for breakfast even though there were a number of tables available. Nobody mentioned that they had a breakfast buffet and handed us menus. After waiting quite awhile to be helped by one of the servers with an attitude (no one seemed happy), we saw people coming out of a door towards the back with food.... More

Had a drink at the friendly bar. Thought the restaurant would be very upscale and dressy. It was not stuffy, had good service and enjoyed the evening.

We brought some out of town guests to Baleen for the Christmas Brunch based on recommendations from folks who'd been there for a regular meal. It was expensive and almost inedible. The seafood at the raw had been prepared too far in advance and was on the verge of spoiled. tTe prepared.dishes in the meat area were either overcooked or... More

Sorry to rain on the parade, but our experience in service and food was less than average. True, location, sunsets and busy ambiance is hard to find anywhere and Baleen is matchless for that, but our waiter was sloppy, careless, could not be worse, obviously undertrained how to serve. Ugggh! I watched other waiters, did not seem to have the... More

We dine at Baleen each winter and are always appreciative that they honor our table requests; there is no better place in Naples to view the sunset and enjoy a beverage and an excellent dinner. Our party of seven enjoyed our meals very much; excellent service was provided by Milos who was friendly and professional. Highly recommended.
